H., July 12.—Today's In quiry Into the alleged violation of the civil service law by Senator Gallinger, of Concord, N. H., developed some sensa tional scenes, and a fist fight was nar rowly averted. As a result of the trouble Senator Chandler said he would ask the president to remove Mr. Brewer from the civil service, commission. Only two witnesses responded to the invitation of the commissioners to be present at today's session. They were Postmasters Henry Robinson, of Concord, and H. A. Spaulding, of Nashua. Their testimony was to the effect that cam paign circulars, asking for assessments for campaign purposes, had been sent out Vs alleged in the charges. Before any witnesses were heard, Sena >or Gallinger asked permission to make a personal statement, in which he called at tention to alleged untruthful statements snade in the editorials of a Concord pa yer, and in dispatches from Concord to a New York paper. Following this, the witnesses were call ed. Postmaster Robinson stated that he received one of the assessment circulars. He produced the circular, and gave it to the commissioners, who filed it away. This incident caused considerable sur prise. Mr. Robinson then said that he had mentioned the fact of receiving the cir cular to Senator Chandler, and upon the inlvk-e of that gentleman had sealed it up, and he had shown it to no one until this time. He was asked to contribute $100, he said, and he wrote to the civil service commission asking them as to his ability t<> contribute under the law. He was in formed that he could not contribute. Cop ies of the correspondence between Mr. Robinson and the commission were in troduced as part of the evidence, and Mr. Roblnßon closed his testimony by stating that he did not contribute. J Postmaster Spaulding was chairman of the Republican state committee in 1596. ]Ie stated that he received one of the cir culars on which the charges in this case are based, but that he did not contribute. When chairman of the state committee, he said, he personally signed the assess ment circulars which were sent out, but none were sent to federal officeholders, except to senators, congressmen and s of the federal courts. At tho conclusion of Mr. Spaulding's lony, the commission took a recess. THE CIRCULAR. The circular on which the charges against Senator Gallinger are based was sent out last fall by the Republican state committee, of which Senator Gallinger was chairman. After speaking of the Im portance of the issue and the amount of work to be done the circular continued: "Absent voters must be brought home; literature must be sent to ali sections of the country; Bpeaking must be maintained throughout the campaign, while the bills for traveling expenses of speakers, post age, telegraphing, printing, etc., will be large. No help will be received from the national or congressional committee. We must look to those who are honored by the party of this state to meet the ex penses of this campaign. Knowing the in terest that you feel in the Republican success, 1 take the liberty of asking you to contribute $ , which sum you can send by check or money order in the en closed stamped envelope to the treasurer of th^ Republican state committee at Con cord, X. 11. Please enclose this circular v.ith your remittance that there may be no mistake in the name." The circular was signed by W. F. Thay er, treasurer of the state committee. LIE PASSED. The afternoon session brought out a warm colloquoy between the two sena tors. Before the adjournment was taken Senator Chandler and Commissioner Brewer had become involved in a dis pute, which, the senator says, will lead him to ask President McKinley for the removal of Mr. Brewer from the civil service commission. No early witnesses were on hand when the afternoon session was called to or der, and by direction of Mr. Brewer, Spe cial Agent Wallls read correspondence be tween the commission and William S. Thayer, treasurer of the Republican state committee in IS9S, whose name was signed to the assessment circular. The commis sion, it appeared, had asked Mr. Thayer whether Senator Gallinger, as chairman of the state committee, had directed or requested the treasurer to send out the assessment circulars. Second, whether the committee had taken action by vote or otherwise requesting the treasurer to send out the circular. Third, whether the treasurer acted as a citizen in, sending out the latter, or only as the agent of the state committee. Fourth, what knowl edge Senator Gallinger had of the treas urer's action, and what connection he had with it. Mr. Thayer had replied that he was elected treasurer of the state committee on September 27, 18S8, and that in that capacity he had collected and dis. posed of the funcls of the committee. "Being an officer of the committee," said he, "I acted on my own responsibil ity, and am answerable only to the com mittee for what I did." In a subsequent letter Mr. Thayer said that neither Senator Gallinger nor tha state committee made any suggestions about the circular, but knew about its being sent to federal officials. The letter from Louis V. Hoyt, secre tary of the Republican state committee, contained a statement of Mr. Thayer and a letter from Senator Gallinger In reply to the same statement that the matter of assessing was never discussed and only acted upon by the cemmittee. The sena tor's letter referred to informed the com mittee that the charges against him were concocted by evil-minded, malicious per sons and that the complaints were no< made in good faith, but for the purposa of revenge, and wero not worthy the at tention which the commission seemed to be giving them. A further letter from Senator Galllnser stated that he person ally "did not at any time Jiscuss with Mr. Thayer or suggest to him the names tpje Jit. itotil (Sink i • • : ; ~ - " •'" * • --■ - • ' r -■■* :"— . "' • - - " ■•-.■.;''-'-- \ ''■•-. .'■ " ' of those to whom the assessment circu lar should be sent" HEATKD EXCHANGES. After an exchange of opinion as to the continuing and closing of the case and the admission of evidence after the clos ing of the hearing, argument and brief, Senator Chandler remarked: "The commission seems to have found out everything connected with this in vestigation except who wrote the assess ment penned the officeholders, who fixed the sums to be assessed, who directed the envelopes and who sent them out. The essential things have not been as certained. It is for the commission to do this and fine these men—" • Here he was interrupted by Mr. Brewer —I object to these things being taken down. Mr. Chandler—Very well, I will say it without having It taken down." Mr. Brewer—Not in this room. This is my room and I pay for it. Senator Chandler—l am not to be muz zled in this room. I have my rights. Mr. Brewer—You have no rights ex cept those of a gentleman. After a. further colloquoy, in which, by implication, each said the other was not a gentleman, Senator Chandler proceed ed to say that the man most wanted in connection with the investigation did not happen to be present. "Mr. Thayer is in this city today, and I believe he has been kept away by Sena tor Gullinger," said Mr. Chandler. Senator Gallinger and his counsel, At torney General Eastman, at once shouted:' "That Is absolutely false. It Is not true." Mr. Eastman continued, calling Chand ler a liar, and said: "I do not care if you are a United States senator." Senator Chandler retorted: "And I do not care if you are attorney general and are defending criminals when you should be prosecuting them." Senatoi Gallinger appealed to the chair. FIGHT AVERTED. Senator Chandler said: "Men who call other men liars do not need protection. I repeat, I believe Sen ator Gallinger has kept Mr. Thayer away." Senator Gallinger shouted: "You don't dare to come outside thia room and say that." "I will go outside and say It," replied Mr. Chandler, starting for th^ door. Friends restrained both men and after a few minutes of confusion the hearing went on. Senator Gallinger read a prepared state ment showing the case against him to be utterly callapsed and protesting against its further continuance. He then left the room and his counsel, Mr. Eastman, spoke with a view of softening the harsh words he had used to Senator Chandler. The latter made a similar concession to Attorney General Eastman, and under such happy auspices the meeting adjourn ed, probably never to resume. The commissioners will not leave town until tomorrow, but there is little like lihood of any further action being taken. Senator Chandler made a statement to night declaring that Commissioner Brew er "prejudiced the case and conducted it in a partial manner; that he showed great discourtesy to the complainants, and made it impossible for the case to be fair ly and fully presented." It. is understood that Senator Chandler ' will ask President McKinley for the re moval of Commissioner Brewer on these charges. DIFFERENCE OF OPINION. Wistoonsin Democrat* Said Not to Favor Silver Plunk. MILWAUKEE, Wis., July 12.—That the Democrats of Wisconsin are still divided was plainly shown by a canvass of the political situation today. While the state central committee favors the nomination of William J. Bryan as a presidential candidate, national committeeman Ed ward C. Wall does not favor the 16 to 1 issue, and many gold Democrats are with him. George W. Peck, chairman «f the Dem ocratic state central committee, in an interview tonight, indorses the organiza tion of the Bryan club in this city last night. National committeeman Wall, however, is quoted as saying that as far as his postion on the national Demo cratic committee is concerned, if the Democratic convention declares for the coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, he would not care to serve on the com mittee. Speaking for the Democratic state central committee, Chairman Peck said: The chairman of the state central com ittee believes, and I believe most of the members agree with him, that Mr. Bryan should be nominated and that he will be nominated. They cannot well, in their official position, advocate his nomina tion now. If he is nominated they will do all in their power to elect him, believ ing him to be the best man in the world today. Individually, the members may join clubs to bring about his nomina tion or the nomination of another.as they may see fit, but the official work of the committee comes when the nomination is made." WILL, NOT RESIGN. Senator Jone* to Continue Chair man of the Democratic Committee. WASHINGTON, July 12. — Senator Jones, of Arkansas, will not resign Ijjs , rcsition as chairman of the Democratic national committee. This can be stated authoritatively, once for all. Two letters ■were received from him in this .city yes terday, in which he not only makes clear his indention of remaining at the head of the committee, but outlines work upon which he intends to engage as soon as he returns to the United States. His letters were dated at Towns in Switzerland, and reported the senator- as improving in health. He was then preparing to go to Geneva to spend a week or more, "and," he said, "I hope to come home entirely well." - He will reach this country about the Ist of September, will *pend that month at Lake Minnetonka, with his married daughter, and will then go to Arkansas, remaining there until congress convenes. It is not known here whether Senator Jones will send a letter to be read at the meeting of the national committee in Chicaro next week, but if he does not the members of the commitxee.will be made acquainted with the contents of the lef ters which have already been received here. • ' CURRENCY CONVENTION. ■ • ", ■ .. ! - .-•- -••'-•. ■ ■ . - ;- ■ ■„ Secretary Smalley Coiiiers With Virginia Gold Men. * RICHMOND, Va., July 12.— E. V. Smal ley, general secretary of the National Sound Money league, was in Richmond today consulting with a number of gold standard men, with reference to holding a . national currency convention in this city on some date in October. The president of the league is Hon. J. Sterling Morton, of Nebraska. The chair man of the executive committee is M. E. Ingalls, president of the Chesapeake & Ohio railway. The vice president for Vir ginia is O. M. Royale, of this city. It is stated that a local committee, con sisting of prominent Richmond men, of both parties, will be organized to take charge of arrangements for the conven tion, and the invitations to speakers. Mr. Smalley left : for Hot ' Springs to night to report to Mr. Ingalls . the ■ result of his conferences in Richmond, and it Is believed a call for the convention will b« issued some time in August* ~ .

LEXINGTON, Ky., July 12.—The. Re publican state convention today com pleted all Its work except the adoption of a platform and the nomination of a ticket. It would have nominated part of the ticket tonight but for the fact that it became entangled in mistakes regarding the adoption of the report on rules. The majority report was adopted without tak ing any vote on the minority report, and those favoring the latter not only ob jected, but insisted that they voted for the majority report when they thought they were voting for the minority re port. The convention adjourned while points of order were being raised. The evening session was not one of parliamentary decorum. The delegates were kept waiting for over two hours over committee on credentials, and they were not in good humor after that time over any questionable rulings or any thing else. The Taylor men have had their way in everything today at the district meet ings and committee meetings and in the convention. They have the permanent organization, and ' have reconciled the colored element by making a negro sec retary of the convention, with a long list of white assistants. SEEKING A COMPROMISE. The Stone and Pratt men are still hold ing secret conferences at midnight with reports that Judge Pratt may accept the nomination for attorney general, but Col. Stone declines a minor place, and it is reported that he does not want Judge Pratt to go on the ticket. -•:■■•. Efforts are said to have been made to day to get Gov. W. O.

A long debate occurred on a motion to refer all the resolutions of protest from the colored men against Gen. Taylor It brought out the colored orators in great vehemence. The chairman finally ruled the motion out of order until the report of the committee on rules and order of business had been adopted. During the afternoon session an acci dent came very near causing a stampede. Th» stage was overcrowded and cracked but it did not give way. A new platform was constructed in another part of the hall during the recess and it was ready for the evening session. The attendance of visitors as well as del agates fes very large. NOISY DELEGATES. The auditorium was filled again before 8 p. m. and the committee on credentials was not ready to report. The large crowd was entertained with a band concert and oratory. After an address by Wood Dun lap on the Goebel trust in politics, Chair man Boreing at 8:45 called the convention to order for business. It was moved to proceed with the re ports on resolutions, rulesi, etc., but the chairman ruled the motion out of order and held that no other report could be considered in advance of that on creden tials. The speaking was resumed by S. H. Kash with a philippic on Goebellsni iii ■which he denounced the Goebel election laws and Goebel's recent nomination for governor. "Uncle Elijah Patrick, of Magoffin county," was introduced, but his elo quence was drowned out by the disorder in the hall. H. S. Irwin, of Louisrille, followed, with more success in com manding attention. Many others were called for, but none of the speakers l :emed to care for the proposition of facing such a noisy audi ence. Some of the delegates were de monstrative in their impatience because of the delay of the committee on creden tials. The yelling was checked by a re cess, after which Judge W. H. Holt, of Frankfort, addressed the convention. E. Franks, of Owensboro, addressed the convention at length, followed by Albert S. White, colored, of Louisville, and others. The band and orators then gave way to business. It was after 10 o'clock when the committee on credentials ap peared and were greeted with cheering. The Hambrick-Todd delegation, of Louis ville, was not seated, and was refused fractional representation. This anti- Taylor delegation returned to Louisville before the evening session. The contest on the Third ward In Louisville resulted in both delegation being; seated, with the vote divided. There were no special lines drawn in favor of Taylor. There was no minority report, and the report was adopted unanimously. ALL FOR TAYLOR. The committee on permanent organiza tion reported Judge James Breathitt, of Hopkinsville, for chairman, and Albert S. White,- of Louisville, for secretary. Judge Breathitt addressed the conven tion on the Issues of the campaign, espe cially on the issue of Qoebelism, as ex emplified at the recent Democratic con vention, and as It Is expected to be ap plied at the next election. The majority report on rules provided for the reference of resolutions without debate, and the minority reporjt for im mediate consideration. The majority re port was adopted. Then ex-Congressman D. G. Colston rose to a point of order, that the vote had been taken on the majority report without consideration or any vote on the minority report. After a long debate, on this question the convention took a recess until 9 o'clock tomorrow morning. MR. ALGER WORRIED, Repeated Htm* of Resignation Be come Annoyingl. WASHINGTON. July 12.—Secretary Al ger today made to a representative of the Associated Press his first personal state ment concerning the reports that he is about to resign from the cabi»t. When asked as to the truth of the rumors the secretary said: "What do you mean, exactly?" "I mean to ask whether or not the stories that you are to retire from the cabinet in the near future-are true?" "There Is nothing In these reports but air," replied the secretary. I shall not retire this year, certainly, and cannot say as to the future. My private business and the state of my health will govern my future course. These constant as saults and repeated baseless reports are of course very annoying to me and ex tremely distressing to my family, but I have never retired under fire yet and do not propose to do »o no^ Nothilfg that I have ever heard of or known of has been so cruel as these attacks upon me. If my critics can point to one thing in my official career that I have done that I ought not to. have done, or that I have not done that I should have done, I shall be very glad to surrender my present official duties." KANSAS CITY WANT* IT. Will Oiler $50,00Q (or Democratic National Convention. CHICAGO, July Kansas City Demo ccats, backed by members of their party In other parts of Missouri, have raised $50,000, which they 'Intend offering to the Democratic 'national committee, if the committee will send the Democratic na tional convention to Kansas City. A large delegation of Kansas City Democrats will be in Chicago next Thursday, when th« national commit teenien- meet here, ready to hand over' $50,000 for the convention. This money would go.- into the national Democratic campaign fund, and it is the opinion: of Democratic leaders that Chi cago, .Omaha,, Denver, Pittsburg or any other city which is fis:4ng for the conven tion must do better than $50,000 if .It. hopes to win the prize.- •' • ■. ———--— *m*. .

L, July 12.—1t seems probable the first race between the Co lumbia and the Defender, under the au spices of the Newport Yacht Racing as sociation, will be Bailed On July 21, in stead of July 20, as previously announced, but the final decision ■will depend entirely upon the time required to complete the repairs to Defender's'boom, and for step ping the Columbia's 1 new steel mast. Herman Duryea, chairman of the com mittee having the races in chawje, said today that he expected the two boats would meet on the 21st, but that the sec ond race between them would not be held until the following Tuesday, the 26th, and that the racing thereafter would con tinue indefinitely. He did not know how many races would be sailed. There might be ten, or there might be only three, but the association proposes to give the boats plenty of chance to test the speed of each and enable the crew of the Colum bia to get all the racing possible.

SAN FRANCISCO, July 12.—The United States transports Newport and Ohio, bearing the Oregon volunteer regiment from Manila, arrived here this evening. The -vessels were sighted early In the aft ernoon, and soon the shrieking steam whistles, the clanging of bells and tha firing of cannon announced the first batch of returning volunteers from Manila wera nearing the shores of California. Within : ' a few minutes the streets were packed ! with people, wending their way to the docks .and the heights overlooking - tha bay, intent on catching a glimpse of the transports as they, steamed -up the har bor under the escort of a score of vessel* which had been made ready for the- ar rival of the steamers. • : • The roofs of the warehouses were 'crowded with people, and from scores of flag poles streamed the stars and stripes- Steamers, tugs, yachts and even small rowboats were soon making their way as fast as possible tov.-ard the Golden Gate. The reception committees boarded the tug boats Sea Queen and Governor Irwin, and headed for the ocean. On board the Irwin were the harbor commissioners, the officials of the National Guard of Cali fornia and Governor Gean, of Oregon, and his staff. On the Sea Queen were the representatives of the press, the band furnished by Mayor Phelan, and many invited guests. The revenue cutter Gold en Gate, bearing federal officials, was soon under way, and she was joined by the federal quarantine boat from Angel Island. Then there were boats at the dis posal of the Red Cross and other socie ties, and many chartered by private par ties. As the transports slowly steamed up the harbor, the soldiers gathered in ex cited groups on deck, and some climbed into the rigging, where they shouted and cheered like mad. The band on the Sea Queen played pa triotic airs, and the screaming of many steam sirens created a pandemonium.

AGI'INALDO'B SPEECH. What the Filipino Leader Said to His Followers Independence Day. MANILA, July 12.— A copy of the Inde pendencia has reached Manila, containing the speech which Aguinaldo made at Ta ralac, on the anniversary of the pro clamation of Filipino independence. In substance it is as follows: "Let us continue to defend our father land until independence is assured, for this is Justice. We shall see at last that the great American nation will acknowl edge the right which is on our side. That doctrine of the great Monroe, that Amer ica is for Americans, is not forgotten. Just as we affirm that the Philippines are for the Filipinos. Some states of tha American union have arisen in our favor. Especially is the Democratic party con vinced that both victors and vanquished will lose precious lives. Thus many of the people and many statesmen censure President McKinley as inhuman for hav ing ordered his military representatives at Manila to seek means to bring about hostilities with the Filipinos. "These facts prove that they wished to try us, to see if we are able to live up to *he second color of our banner, which signifies courage, heroism and martyr dom. Therefore we should not resent this struggle with the Americans. In spite of their expressed desire to domi nate all the Philippines, well convinced are they that we fight with justice and right on our side, and that autonomy is all a show of deceit, only serving to save certain accumulated wealth. "We have never .concealed our aspira tions, that we aspire but to independence; that we will struggle on to obtain it, per haps from those who are now our ene mies and tomorrow will be our allies, as they were for the overthrow of the power of Spain. We might well accept this au tonomy America offers, but what can we do with it If our ambition is Independence, and if we are to accept it only to later overthrow by force of arms the sovereign ty of America?

We do not wish to be traitors afterward. We wish to show our character of frankness and sin cerity and nothing more. "Let us avoid the example of those na tives who, having at one time been col* onists, accepted autonomy to enable them to make their work surer once everything was prepared. History has given us an example of this in recent events. Let ua persist in our idea, which is only the lei gitimate and noble aspirations of a peo ple which is desirous at all cost to pre. serve its national honor spotless and pure as a crystal. Thus, then, there will not be a single Filipino autonomist. Those who are so are, in the eyes of the people, but time servers, fearful of losing their riches, threatened by risks of war. . "Filipinos, let us be constant. L«t us strengthen the bonds of our union." Aguinaldo concluded with calling for cheers for- independence, the union of Filipinos and for the liberating army. m MINE STRIKE ENDED. Elarht Thousand Miners* to Return to Work nt Once. ' INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., July 12.—Presi dent Mitchell, of the United Mine Work ers' Union of North America, received a telegram this afternoon stating that the Buffalo, Rochester and' Pittsburg Coal company, of Pennsylvania, which is the largest single coal company in the world, has conceded to the demands of the strik ers and an agreement has been reached by virtue of which 8,000 men will return to work at once. This, Mr. Mitchell says, is a long step In settling the troubles in District No. 2, which comprises the cen tral portion of Pennsylvania. The agree ment means a gifeat deal for the twenty mining towns there are In the district. The men secured an advance of 2& cents a ton for machine mined coal. Mr. Mitchell also received a telegram from Evansvllle saying that the Evans ville Mining company had signed ' the Bcale demanded by the miners. "I feel," said he, "that the Evansville strike will be brought to a conclusion that is in every way favorable to the men in a short time." m FORMIDABLE ARRAY.
